Dance Education Workshop
Hanna, Judith Lynne
Research in Dance Education, v3 n1 p47-55 Apr 2002
Dance education in the USA has a new window of opportunity to reach every child in academic schools. The National Education Goals now recognize dance as a core subject, such as, e.g. language. To take advantage of this development, the "Intelligent Moves--Partnering Dance & Education K-12" workshop for teachers was held as part of the Vail Valley (Colorado, US) International Dance Festival. The workshop focused on learning in, about and through dance to teach, reinforce, review and assess skills and content in any subject matter. Participants had hands-on movement experience, including with children, to explore models for "Seeing a Dance Performance" and "Connections: Steps to Integrate Dance with other Subjects K-12." (Contains 1 table and 3 notes.)
